We rated this book:


Will Smith has been in the public eye for over thirty years. He has found success in the music industry (rap/pop), in the television industry, and as a bankable box office draw. However, the path to fortune and fame wasn’t an easy one. Will learned copious amounts of life lessons growing up in West Philadelphia, including striving for what one wants in life and possessing the fortitude to make a comeback after a failure or two.

Despite his mother’s educational plans for him, his interest and skill at ripping rhymes led to his partnership with DJ Jazzy Jeff. His likability as a rapper led to an offer for a television show. The popularity of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air led to opportunities on the big screen. Smith’s ability and work ethic led to more successes than failures. His charisma and dynamic screen presence have continued to yield prime roles.

Will is an honest and open assessment of the life of one of the world’s most beloved entertainers. It is an autobiography that is funny as well as moving, interesting, and absorbing. Smith’s straightforwardness in approaching his highs and lows in show business, family, and love render the book truly appealing.
